Carrboro advances to 2-A  boys' soccer quarterfinals

WASHINGTON — No. 7 seed Carrboro came back from a 2-0 halftime hole to pull out a 3-2 win over the No. 2 seed Washington Pam-Pack 3-2 at Washington Tuesday night in the third round of the state 2-A playoffs.

Carrboro, which finished second in the state playoffs a year ago, got rolling on the first of two Mark Rovner goals early in the second half. Luke Hickey, assisted by Nico Krachenfels, scored to tie the game and Rovner scored the game winner with 15 minutes left.

The state quarterfinals will likely be played either Friday or Saturday.

Carrboro, the only one of six surviving area playoff teams to complete a third-round game Tuesday — the others are set for Wednesday night, Nov. 6 — will face the winner of tonight’s No. 11 Elizabeth City Northeastern (16-4-1) at No. 3 Clinton (20-3-2) game. If Northeastern wins, Carrboro will play at home. If Clinton wins, the Jaguars will return to the road.
